To encourage cost conscious last minute shoppers to buy, the online retail industry has declared Dec 18 to be Free Shipping Day and made shipping free for all purchases, no matter how small, at participating stores. According to the Website freeshippingday.com, which exists solely to track the event, over 900 online merchants are participating this year.
Unfortunately, among all the major online sellers of prepaid phones, only Radio Shack seems to be participating in Free Shipping Day.
